Bucky Bleichert (Josh Hartnett) and Lee Blanchard (Aaron Eckhart) are two L.A. cops, and pals who made a name for themselves on the force as fearsome boxers. They're also two of the department's best detectives, who seldom fail to solve a case.

The infamous murder of 1940s Hollywood starlet Elizabeth Short (Mia Kirshner), aka 'The Black Dahlia' becomes an obsession for both men. Short was mutilated in a bizarre fashion in a crime that taunted the city for decades; Bucky and Lee believe they can crack the case, but they discover a slew of other troubling secrets in the process.
